  • Thursday evening, about 6:09 p.m., LaGrange Police responded to 2100 block of Pegasus Parkway in reference to reports of criminal trespass.

Officers arrived and met with the complainant, who stated he owns the property, which used to be the location of his business. The victim then showed police a stack of black trash bags that had been left on the property piled on the corner of a cement pad.

The victim explained that someone had illegally dumped their trash on his property and that it was the second time that this had happened to his knowledge.

The victim located several pieces of mail within the trash addressed to a subject on Cumberland Drive. It is suspected that the dump may have been closed, so whoever dumped the trash took it to his nearby property only 1,700 feet down the road.
